Terrace views in Barcelona
Drinking a cocktail or eating dinner at one of the terraces with views all over Barcelona is becoming more and more common, both for tourists and locals alike. Indeed, there is no better way to enjoy the nice weather than to feel the cool breeze on your skin, share a good conversation and drinks with friends, all as you experience some of the best panoramic views of the city. Such is the demand for high terraces in Barcelona that the hotel guild in the city has created the “Week of Hotel Terraces of Barcelona,” when the best terraces all over the city fill up with activities and concerts.
Terrace views in downtown Barcelona
Among the standout terraces with deeper history, we find Terraza del Hotel Claris, a five-star hotel located inside Palacio Vedruna, next to Paseo de Gracia. This hotel’s terrace was one of the first to open its doors to the city’s nightlife and offers one of the most spectacular views of downtown Barcelona. Aside from the view, the terrace draws people in due to its ample gastronomic offer, its appetizing cocktails and live music.
Very close by, you will find Hotel Condes de Barcelona, where Bar Alaire terrace awaits. From here you will be able to see La Pedrera’s silhouette and the Sagrada Familia Church backline. In addition to good drinks and appetizers, Alaire offers live music with funk, rock, or Groove rhythms, including on winter times.
A different panoramic view of the Sagrada Familia Church and an excellent view of Agbar Tower is what you will find at Novotel Barcelona City’s terrace, where you will also be able to enjoy a pool and lounge bar. Its white-colored decorations and Mediterranean vegetation make this terrace an ideal place to relax and unplug from the city’s frenzy.
Terraces with views over the sea
Just a couple of minutes away from Las Ramblas, you will find Hotel Duquesa de Cardona, offering one grandiose view atop its Brisa del Mar terrace. From the sixth floor of this building you will be able to admire the Olímpico Port, the Barceloneta, the Maremágnum Commercial Center, and the Paseo de Colón, all while you enjoy its pool, solarium, or a cocktail in its comfy sofas. Close by you will find Hotel Arts Barcelona, a five-star hotel that, besides having an art collection and casino, hosts “Las Noches de Arola”. This restaurant with terrace has been awarded a Michelin star, and is managed by Sergi Arola. It offers a wonderful view of the Olímpico Port and Barcelona’s downtown. Those looking for a fun atmosphere free of cares, will be best served at Axel Sky terrace of the Axel Hotel Barcelona. This hotel offers great cocktails in its lounge bar and one of the best views of Barcelona Eixample, with the sea as the background.
Terrace views all over the city
Finally, you will find Gran Hotel La Florida, considered one of the most exclusive five-star hotels in Barcelona.
